    Hi! So I've been lurking here for a couple of years but I've always been too intimidated to post anything (let alone any of my work) - now I'm just gonna bite the bullet and hope it will kick me into drawing a bit more, especially from observation/life.
    I'm currently in my second year of studying biomedicine but not with much passion at all; before I consider making the jump to a decent art school overseas I'd really like to improve so any and all critiques are gladly welcome

    Here's some stuff from the year to start off; hopefully after exams I'll be able to update this regularly and I can look back at this first post and see (a bit of) improvement! Also, let me know if I'm doing anything wrong haha.

    Welcome! I'm browsing from my phone so I can't offer a ton of feedback but your work is more than worthy of this forum. Great character and form. Nice style. Keep working!

    A WIP, and some other odd sketches playing around with my new tablet.
    I'm planning to darken the background of the in-progress piece a bit (at least near the top) and it's only 1am so I've got a couple hours left of work today but any crits/comments would be more than welcome!

    Hey nice work!!! Just a ill crit on this piece. The character is mainly back lit, so maybe add some harder light around the right edge of the character. On her hair, down 'her' left arm skirt and back of the leg. I think this would bring it more, as there is no light on the back of her leg that reflects the light coming from the door. Also, I think her feet look a bit strange and small.

    I hope I am being clear. All in all, I think you have great sketches here. Looking forward to more!!

    I'm really sorry again for the huge dump, I was living in Montreal until recently and got completely caught up. Graduating from Biomedicine in December this year and since my priorities are clearly in order, I'd really like to get some serious improvement & a portfolio done for some applications. I'll also try to be more active around here in general, not just in this thread, since I'm pretty disappointed that this is nearly all I have to show since last June! Tried to narrow it down to reduce the size of this thing but really gotta pick my game up; even the harshest critiques will be opened with very welcome arms

    (time to draw myself to sleep)

    I'm fairly set on applying to Sheridan and CalArts for animation! Started a new sketchbook last Saturday; still haven't had the chance to get out and do some serious observational drawing but I'll try to get some done over Easter break.
    Any direction or anything really would be really appreciated :)

    Thank you to both of you for the encouragement! I'll definitely try to keep it up at or above, perhaps with some more rabbits on the side haha

    Good luck on your art school applications, I am sure you'll have no trouble making it in! Really loving the fluidity and expression of your figure work.

    Are those fox paintings in oil, out of curiosity? I'm thinking the backgrounds could have benefited from a more purposeful use of brushstrokes to spice them up a little bit... right now it feels a little bit over-blended.

    Thank you very much! I really hope so, though the standard is crazy high so I have a lot of work ahead of me (don't we all?)
    And those are in acrylic, but I definitely agree they're lacking something; I'm just starting out in painting so that tip is really helpful! I'll try to add/retain more texture in the future, cheers.

    Once again again again, I have neglected this place. Someone needs to kick me often... I'll split this update into a few posts in the hope I'll get to page 2 sooner and avoid those bandwidth-killers up there (sorry if there's a rule against this that I haven't spotted! Just let me know)
    edit; so it appears my other two posts need moderator approval, should've known this'd be the case haha. (moderators, let me know if you want me to merge them all into this post)
